Default aA Designs YOU INSPIRE ME ART Challenge (4.29 -5.7)

aA Designs is celebrating National Scrapbook Day on May 7 and we would love for you to join us in the celebration with a very special and ‘Inspiring’ AnnaChallenge.

YOU INSPIRE ME ... An Art Journal Page Challenge
Here’s to those who inspire you and don’t even know it! (unknown)

Simply put, an art page is a page in which you combine art and words to express yourself. That's it. It's not complex, and there really aren't any rules for art journaling. It's all about self-expression. ... You are an artist, and you can create an art journal page without drawing or sketching.

What styles influence your art? What artist has inspired you the most? Select an artist (famous or not so famous………..many of your favorites might be tucked right inside the Anna Gallery!) that has inpired your art work.
• include wordART (some of Anna’s or your own)
• include brush work, artstrokes, paint splatters, etc.
• include colors that may be seen in the inspirational artist’s works
• 80% of the page must be made with aA Designs Products

Be inspired and create your Art Journal page and then upload your page to the Anna gallery, plus include it here in this forum thread.

Upload your page by May 14, 2017 by NOON EST with the title, ‘You Inspire Me’ and a few lucky participants will be randomly selected to win some prizes.

We have 'Get an AnnaRelease of your choice' ticket (past or upcoming) and 3 X $5.00 GiftKard to Anna’s store up for grabs.

The winnerS will be posted May 14, 2017 here in the forum.

Join Anna on May 7 NSD for ArtPlay Un3dited LIVE

A few Anna Products to Inspire ...
Artplay Palette Chatter
Artplay Palette ArtLife
Artplay Palette Artsy
Artplay Palette Roots
MultiMedia kits

A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.
(-Salvador Dali)
Creativity is contagious. Pass it on. (-Albert Einstein)

We appreciate each and every one of you for INSPIRING us and sharing your ART in the Anna gallery.
Thank YOU!
Anna and Team

Although many artists at Oscraps have influenced and inspired me over the years, it was Anna Aspnes who started it all for me, and to whom I continue to return for inspiration. She broke me out of my rectangular world, and led me through the magical door of ArtZyness! How can "Thank You" even begin to express my feelings?

Can I say that I LOVE; I mean really LOVE Georgia O'Keeffe's work???? She has done some landscapes but must of her work are HUGE flowers that take up the whole canvas. I had to take an art appreciation class in college and that is where I was introduced to her paintings.
This layout reflects her love for flowers. She really inspires me!!

Default continues to rain

I knew this would be a hard one for me --- most of my LOs come from "what kind of day" it is. However, I did find a collage by Anne Bagby that spoke to me of the continued rain we are having, so ...
